Jury Citation

“This Monstrous Heart” takes the reader on a surreal adventure into a world that feels at once familiar and strange. In elegant, seemingly effortless prose the author paints an intimate portrait of a friendship and the human heart. Like its protagonist, this story is a giant – but packaged in a tiny frame. It deftly balances humour, tragedy, introspection, and suspense.
